  • Patent number: 11321676
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing flexible events in an electronic calendar are disclosed. In embodiments, a computer-implemented method comprises: determining, by a computing device, that an electronic calendar event is a flexible event based on recording data of the electronic calendar event indicating that a recording of the electronic calendar event may be available; determining, by the computing device, an end date by which the electronic calendar event must be completed based on the scheduling data; and displaying, by the computing device, an electronic calendar with the electronic calendar event to a user.

  • Patent number: 11251940
    Abstract: An approach is provided for deterring a tampering of content. Content is signed by using an asymmetric key cryptography. The signed content is stored in a distributed ledger which is accessible to a plurality of subscribers of the distributed ledger. The signing of the content using the asymmetric key cryptography together with the storing of the signed content in the distributed ledger provide a non-repudiable identification of an owner of the content and a non-repudiable proof of an ownership of the content.

  • Publication number: 20210393487
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and apparatus for transporting and dispensing medications for a patient according to a medication schedule for the patient. A smart container from a pharmacy is received at the patient's site and the container is checked to make sure that the container was delivered to the correct patient site. The smart container contains a memory device that contains identification information of the patient, dosage and treatment instructions for the patient. This information and the medication were checked for compatibility before the smart container was delivered. The identity of the patient at the patient's site is then checked and the patient performs on or more biometric tests before the medication is dispensed by the smart container. Upon taking the medication and providing video proof thereof, the smart container is returned to the pharmacy.

  • Patent number: 11176209
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system and computer program product for improving query searches. After receiving a query from a user to conduct a content search, the query is analyzed for its semantic meaning and a categorized group of query tags and content tags in the central repository that is most semantically similar in meaning to the meaning of the query is identified. Furthermore, the content tags and query tags in the user's repository are analyzed to determine the interests of the user. The query may then be augmented to include one or more other terms of interest from the identified categorized group of query tags and content tags in the central repository that match the determined interests of the user within a threshold degree of relatedness, where these other terms of interest correspond to the content tags and query tags of the identified categorized group based on their assigned weight.

  • Patent number: 11165776
    Abstract: Embodiments for managing for managing access to computing system resources are described. A list of privileged users having access to a computing system privilege is received. The computing system privilege is associated with a set of privilege credentials. The receiving of a first set of credentials and a second set of credentials from a user attempting to access the computing system privilege is detected. The user is caused to be granted access to the computing system privilege only if the first set of credentials matches the set of privilege credentials and the second set of credentials is associated with one of the privileged users.

  • Publication number: 20210279207
    Abstract: The present disclosure includes initiating file transfers between devices based on a combination of a gaze of a user and a physical gesture of one or more users. Using an eye tracking device, it is detected when a user is gazing in a specified direction. Using a movement detection device, it is detected when the user makes a specified physical gesture. A threshold combination of the gazing in the specified direction and the specified physical gesture is met is determined. A specified file is transferred to a specified location, in response to the threshold combination being met.

  • Patent number: 10958458
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and a system include a processor(s) that monitors an event, as a proxy for an invitee, to assign or periodically update a value (the value shifts temporally during the event). The processor(s) monitors the event by analyzing sentiment and emotion in verbal content, generate a speech baseline for each attendee, i.e., tone neutral vocal communication patterns, determine an aggregate tone for the event, and generating and progressive update, during the monitoring, the value (the value represents deviations in tone from the aggregate tone in portions of the verbal content proximate to an occurrence of one or more keywords relevant to the invitee, based on the aggregate tone and the speech baseline for each of the one or more attendees). The processor(s) determine that the value has exceeded a threshold and trigger an action to facilitate connection of the invitee to the event.

  • Patent number: 10901806
    Abstract: Approaches presented herein enable optimization of a plurality of resources connected within an Internet of Things (IoT) network. More specifically, usage of a first and a second resource of the plurality of resources connected within the IoT network is tracked. This usage comprises a task and a time at which the task is performed for each of the two resources. An anticipated task at an anticipated time based on the tracked usage of the first resource is identified. An anticipated capacity at substantially the same anticipated time is also identified on the second resource based on the tracked usage of the second resource. Excess capacity is generated on the first resource by transferring the anticipated first task to the second resource for the anticipated time. The excess capacity is designated for use by an arm's-length party. A load from the arm's-length party is then assigned to the excess capacity.

  • Patent number: 10878233
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide techniques for analyzing technical documents against known art. One or more machine learning classifiers are trained by a training set. References are ingested and assembled into a corpus. An input query is processed by natural language processing, and the classifiers are used to retrieve relevant documents and references, providing solutions to the input query. Anti-patterns are identified and provided to a user in the form of a report to alert the user to potential problems with the input query.

  • Patent number: 10878514
    Abstract: Embodiments of an expense validator extract from an expense receipt object expense event data that includes identification of an expense entity, a geographic location, a time of the expense event, a person authorized to submit a claim for expenses to an expense management system, and another person that is associated to the authorized person as an attendee of the expense event. The embodiments acquire proof-of-location data at a time period inclusive of the expense event time from a first mobile device that is associated with the authorized person; determine from the acquired proof-of-location data indirect proof-of-location data indicative of attendance of the other person at the expense event geographic location during expense event time; and validate a submission of the expense receipt object as a function of the proof-of-location data.
